  • Publication number: 20150044415
    Abstract: The present invention follows from a number of recent discoveries relating to cellulose fibrils and crystals. Unique properties of these compositions provide for novel structural materials that exhibit extremely high strength per unit of mass. Structures and articles first taught herein may be formed by computer numerically controlled processing, extruding, molding, shearing, weaving, and various additive manufacturing techniques, as well as by other more traditional procedures. These structures and articles may be used as a skin or core in composite constructions. These structures and articles can be used as free standing shells or panels. They may be made into intricate forms, particularly in three spatial dimensions with sonic elements in tension and some elements in compression to realize high performance functionalities. Cellulose matter is a dominate part of these compositions, making the articles fully biodegradable.

  • Publication number: 20150037531
    Abstract: Porous aluminum-containing ceramic bodies are treated to form acicular mullite crystals onto the surfaces of their pores. The crystalsare formed by contacting the body with a fluorine-containing gas or a source of both fluorine and silicon atoms to form fluorotopaz at the surface of the pores, and then decomposing the fluorotopaz to form acicular mullite crystals. This process allows the surface area of the ceramic body to be increased significantly while retaining the geometry (size, shape, general pore structure) of the starting body. The higher surface area makes the body more efficient as a particulate filter and also allows for easier introduction of catalytic materials.

    Abstract: A composite having a core containing a cellular structure, reinforcing fibers, an upper face sheet, and a lower face sheet is provided. The cellular structure is a honeycomb structure containing strips of carrier material arranged in an x direction in an x-y plane, adhered together, and expanded in the x direction after adhesion. The reinforcing fibers are externally bonded onto the outer walls of each of the cells of the cellular structure in a z direction. The upper face sheet and the lower face sheet are configured to be bonded to the upper portion and the lower portion of the reinforcing fibers that extend outwardly from the upper edges and the lower edges of the cells of the cellular structure respectively, thereby establishing a three dimensional continuity of the reinforcing fibers between a surface of contact between the core, the upper face sheet, and the lower face sheet.

  • Publication number: 20140302276
    Abstract: A multilayer structure (4) of the present invention includes a hollow plate-like body (1) made of a thermoplastic resin, and a fiber sheet (2) and a thermoplastic resin film (3) that are laminated on at least one principal surface of the hollow plate-like body. Even if this multilayer structure (4) is curved, raised wrinkles (6) are not formed or not likely to be formed on the inner surface due to buckling or bending, so that the strength is not likely to be reduced. Thus, the multilayer structure can satisfy both flexural rigidity and flexural strength while maintaining the light weight. The fiber sheet (2) is preferably a multiaxial fiber sheet and/or a woven fabric. The lamination is preferably thermal lamination using an adhesive film interposed between the layers.

    Abstract: A method and an article of manufacture are disclosed for reinforcing various structures with only partially accessible circumference, such as columns closely adjacent to or protruding out of a wall or beams holding a ceiling. Some of these structures may be partly or completely submerged in water, such as retaining walls on the sides of rivers and water-ways. In some embodiments a prefabricated shell will fully or partly cover the exposed and reachable part of the structure and will be secured in place by various means. The shell may hug the structure tightly or loosely and the space between the shell and the structure may be filled with such curable materials as glue, epoxy, grout, concrete and the like. In various embodiments additional reinforcement such as rebar may be placed in the space between the shell and the structure.
